Hello,would anyone have any pictures of Exeter St Thomas box (closed 1959) internal or external? My research so far has produced nothing apart from the SRS diagram and endless photos of trains under the Brunel train shed none of which show the box. Was it an actual box or incorporated into part of the building as where its location is shown there are still traces of it in the brickwork together with wire pulleys along the former down platform extension.

Have you tried asking the Cornwall Railway Society? They have photographers who were taking pictures in that area in the 1950s: http://www.cornwallrailwaysociety.org.uk

Yes,always my first port of call. Sadly all the photos are either early 70's or modern. The one shot that would show the boxes former location has a Peak in the way. Pictures of this box along with Westcott,Rewe and Cotfield seem elusive.
